@Leafylizard Thanks! There are lots of similar analyses, but the narrative pushers don't care. When I first started understanding the history of the recent Russian aggression, one of the first things I did was track down articles that debunk these out-of-date Azov/Ukraine tropes.
I trust Russia on this and I hope those within eastern Ukraine who have now joined Russia move as far east into Russia as possible. Bc the entire "let's stay in the community" is reckless. If Azov/Ukraine are shelling that area Russia should've already relocated them.
